Happy October everyone!!!
My recommendation today if you are at home with your kids, is get outside every day. Even just for a little while.
I find that if we don’t get abit of fresh air every day we can go abit crazy!!
Master H especially enjoys getting out to our local park. He loves watching the ducks & since its Autumn, picking up lots of leaves!
I learnt from a very wise child minder that you don’t need a lot of toys to keep children happy & thoroughly enthralled.
Kids learn through play, but my friend has taught me that play doesn’t have to be with loads of plasticky toys, although they can be good too.
A walk in the fresh air looking at nature & seeing people out & about working is teaching my boy far more.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to sell myself as the perfect Mama, there are days we don’t make it out & the telly is on far longer than it should!
But the days we do make it out always seem to go that bit better, & even if we only get out for half an hour I feel like I’ve achieved something!
Yesterday we popped out to a park & noticed a huge horse chestnut tree in the corner!
We got ourselves a hoard of treasure yesterday!

Until the next time friends.
Have a great day!
